Aabirah in Little Bee (The Other Hand)

By Chris Cleave


Aabirah is the girl with no name's daughter, who, we come to understand, is dead. In Mr. Ayers's shelter, the girl with no name begins hallucinating that her daughter is there with her. In a touchingly disturbing scene, Little Bee and Yevette play along, acting as if the little girl is alive and real.
